Ski 4 Kids

Ski 4 Kids Day is a festive winter day full of events for children aged 0-14.  Fundraising and awareness efforts combine obstacle courses, a mock-biathlon, and series of races to tempt and tantalize kids of all ages. The ultimate goal is to help develop an appreciation of winter outdoor sports and to promote fitness for Anchorage area youth!

There is no set participant fee for Ski 4 Kids, just a donation of your choice. Net proceeds from the event directly benefit the NSAA grant program which provides ski equipment to schools and youth organizations.

Register

There are 4 easy ways to register for Ski 4 Kids.  We respectfully recommend a $20 entry donation.
